This blog reviews the presentation software 'Prezi' as a tool which can be used as a substitute for PowerPoint.
The reviewer explains that she found "it particularly valuable for how it explores the potential of the screen in a manner akin to the “infinite canvas.” Unlike PowerPoint’s strategy of isolating information onto individual pages, borrowing the metaphor from old-fashioned slide decks, Prezi allows for communication “between the slides”–the placement of information in relation to other content can be another part of the presentation’s message." (Salter, 2012)
The blog also provides a couple of Prezi examples to demonstrate the potential of the software.
